FILM INCENTIVES:  Today, we need to relax.  Things are in motion.  We successfully did our job over the past two days. We flooded Thom TIllis’ phone lines and thanked him and let him know what the NC citizens want — put the film incentives in the budget.  Thank you everyone!!  Results of our efforts will be revealed in the next 36 hours.  You rock!


The ads begin running tomorrow! We are running an ad campaign of our own on radio statewide.  Please throw in $5 or more so we can run our radio ads about keeping the NC Film Incentives in NC. We are almost up to $2000! We need about $1000 to hit the larger markets, and they are expensive!   Let’s keep it going NC!!! We need to make this happen TODAY!  Chip in! I threw in $200, but you can throw in whatever you can afford! DONATE NOW!


Our talented makeup artist Jeff Goodwin along with the CFIFN  are gearing up with a proposal to bring a Wilmington Film Museum to light!  Very excited about this! They are holding a public planning meeting Friday, July 11th at 6 p.m. July 11 at Giant on N. 23rd.  Got some good ideas?  Bring them with you! I am so there!  CHECK ‘EM OUT!


Although Max Steel has left our shores, they are still hard at work!  But first, lemme take a selfie!

The countdown continues!  19 days until the premiere of Under the Dome!  Are you getting as stupid excited as I am?  Woo Hoo! Our Domies are back at the Gypsum Plant today.  They will be out and about in plain sight tomorrow as well as the rest of the week.

Sleepy Hollow is not straying too far from the sound stages as they will be on One Tree Hill Way.  They are currently shooting Episode 3.


Happy birthday from Wilmywood to Pacey….’er I mean Joshua Jackson! Ok… we all know him as “Pacey” from the WB show filmed here in Wilmywood, Dawson’s Creek! Our boy next door is all grown up and celebrating his birthday today! Although the
boyish good looks are still there, he is far from the kid we watched grow up on screen. Joshua has gone on to do voice over work for The Simpsons, played himself in Ocean’s Eleven, and is the executive producer and star of the Indie film One Week.
pacey_joeyNot to be out done by James Van Der Beek’s internet sensation “VanderFeelings,” Joshua has paid homage to his character with Pacey-Con. In 2010, Joshua camped out across the street from the famous San Diego Comic Con and handed out fan fiction he wrote himself. The footage of this hilarious and brilliant stunt was filmed and can be seen on Funny Or Die.

Speaking of writing, did you know our TV/Indie film star is also an author? Joshua wrote the first story from the comic book trilogy Beyond the Fringe which is called “Peter and the Machine.”

He acts, he directs, he writes, he produces and he has a great sense of humor and has been on the Sexiest Man Alive list three times!! . . . Who knew Pacey was such a catch? Actually… I think we all did.  Happy Birthday from Wilmywood Joshua!
